Dogs Dogs Dogs …Cats, Birds, Snakes, Bats, and Bunnies
We locals here in Broome love our pets so much so that we often need to fly our pets as well as ourselves! There is a bit to know before they travel, but here is the most important info about Qantas, Virgin and Air North who can carry your pets.
Broome Air Freight, at 6A Coghlan Street, is the place to lodge your animals for flying … ONLY if they are travelling unaccompanied!
You must be at our depot BEFORE 90 MINUTES prior to the aircraft departure time. Check in for our pets CLOSES AT 90 MINUTES prior to the aircraft departing. So aim to be at our depot 120 minutes prior to departure time.
If you are traveling on the same aircraft as your beloved pet, then you need to check in with your pet at the Broome International Airport in McPherson Street.
Place your pet out side gate 7 in a crate then proceed to the checkin counter to alert them that you are outside at gate 7 waiting with your pet. If you are short on time jump, the queue if necessary to alert the staff of your pet.
Animal check-in CLOSES AT 90 MINUTES prior to the aircraft departing.
